Speaking on Friday during the schools 2022 form four graduation, Bwanaisa said reasons for dropping out of school were early marriages and pregnancies.

“The school has a lot of challenges ranging from inadequate school blocks, staff houses, laboratory and library and we call upon government and Non-Governmental Organizations to assist us with any of these items,” said Bwanaisa.

Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Culture Dr. Michael Usi who graced the graduation challenged the outgoing students to continue abstaining and persevering as they continue with their education saying reaching form four is just the beginning of their education journey.

“You have a long way to go with your education but without putting God first, abstinence and perseverance, you will not succeed in your life,” Usi challenged the outgoing students.
